Qatar restored full diplomatic relations with Iran on Thursday, despite an ongoing feud with other Arab nations that accuse the tiny Gulf nation of supporting terror groups in Iran. In a statement released early Thursday, Qatar’s Foreign Ministry said its ambassador would return to Tehran to resume his diplomatic duties and expressed interest in strengthening bilateral relations. Saudi Arabia, Egypt, Bahrain, and the United Arab Emirates in June launched an economic and travel embargo against Qatar over its close ties to Iran.
